This question has the subject-verb agreement issue.

[u][b]OPTION A - INCORRECT[/b][/u]
In the sentence, the use of the present progressive tense of the verb is wrong. Also ''with high temperatures'' as used in the sentence is wrong because it changes the intended meaning.

[u][b]OPTION B - INCORRECT[/b][/u]
The subject ''the high temperatures'' doesn't have a verb showing the action it is performing. ''igniting'' in the sentence is a participle.

[u][b]OPTION C - INCORRECT[/b][/u]
This option changes the intended meaning of the sentence. The verb construction '' ignites the combustion'' is incorrect.

[u][b]OPTION D - INCORRECT[/b][/u]
There's also the issue of subject-verb agreement. The use of ''ignite the combustion'' is wrong.

[u][b]OPTION E - CORRECT[/b][/u]
There's the subject-verb agreement, it also gives the correct meaning of the sentence.
